Police Brutality Cases Continue to Pile Up
Another day, another Black man killed who didn't need to be. What is going on America? We shed tears when other shootings occur that don't involve law enforcement. Somehow when you have a badge it becomes alright to use gun violence? Are we going to have another sit-in John Lewis? Where are the Democrats, who some of us show unwavering loyalty to, when our people are being gunned down in the street by people who are sponsored and endorsed by the State?
Philando Castile and his murder in Minnesota just happened a few hours ago and is still unfolding. There's a picture of the aftermath of the attack all over the internet right now which can be seen below. There's a 9+ min video on Twitter as well that I won't post here due to the graphic nature of it. The picture below says it all. The hashtags #FalconHeightsShooting and Philando Castile are currently trending on Twitter...
Check out a sample of Twitter right now below...

Alton Sterling's murder went viral on July 6 and occurred late on July 5 in the latest of the recent police brutality cases. Two video have been revealed that show no gun was drawn, so the cops over-acting the "he's got a gun!" line is obvious and it's clear that's the tactic used that directly leads to extra-judicial murder because the bar is set so low in America in terms of holding police accountable. Oh, these guys had body cams too and they were mysteriously and conveniently not functioning when they took Alton Sterling's life.
Even if Alton Sterling DID have a gun, Louisiana is an open carry state! Just like Tamir Rice in Ohio. Any attempt to claim Sterling resisted arrest is immediately debunked by the video. Let's stop trying to alter reality, white supremacists, because the real world doesn't fit your narrative. Stay strong Black people. The revolution will be televised...it'll be streamed online for the entire world to see.
